January Registration is held for new members who wish to join mid-year as well as current members who are requested to re-audition by the choir directors. Rehearsals are held each Tuesday throughout the school year from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m. in the L-P Choral Room.

Go out and audition for the children's show at 212! You don't need to prepare anything but I will give you the following tips:

Speak and sing with a strong voice (don't shout) and make that voice go to the back of the theatre. 🎭🎤

Use your face! Smile, frown, whatever is appropriate for the song. At the very least, raise your eyebrows up. 😀😫😳

Use your arms when you dance. 💃

Nervous? Take a deep breath and go for it! You can do it!!! 🙌👏👍
